WICHITA – Join Wesley Children’s Hospital as it hosts the ninth annual Halloween in the Park, a popular safety-themed community event at Edgemoor Park that attracts hundreds of children every year.
Come rain or shine, children of all ages are invited to join us on Friday, Oct. 26, from 6-9 p.m. at Edgemoor Park, 5815 E. Ninth St., for a free night of trick-or-treating and Halloween fun. Dozens of community sponsors will have booths and fun activities to entertain and delight our guests.
“Halloween in the Park is such a great family event for Wichita,” said Meghan Landwehr, Wesley pediatric trauma manager. “The event provides a fun trick-or-treating experience while educating kids on how to have a safe and enjoyable Halloween.”
Children will have the opportunity to get a free bear at Wesley’s Teddy Bear Clinic, trick-or-treat at various booths, participate in Halloween craft projects, and tour an ambulance, police car and fire truck. There also will be a photo booth for families to take fun Halloween photos.
Halloween in the Park is supported by several community sponsors, including the City of Wichita, Wichita Park & Recreation, Wichita Police Department, Wichita Fire Department, Sedgwick County 911, LifeSave Transport, 97.1 BOB FM, D and D Equipment Sale, Davis Moore, Cornejo and Sons, McConnell Air Force Base, Exploration Place, Wichita Photo Booth, Pepsi, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Adventure Dental & Vision, Fountainview Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, Clearwater Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, Lexi’s Lamp and Wichita Thunder.
